Attempted Crime Spree

The following mind-boggling attempt at a crime spree in Washington USA
appeared to be the robber's first (and last), due to his lack of a previous
record of violence, and his terminally stupid choices:

1. His target was H&J Leather & Firearms, A gun shop specializing in

2. The shop was full of customers - firearms customers.

3. To enter the shop, the robber had to step around a marked police patrol
car parked at the front door.

4. A uniformed officer was standing at the counter, having coffee before
work. Upon seeing the officer, the would-be robber announced a hold-up, and fired a few wild shots from a .22 target pistol. The officer and a clerk
promptly returned fire, the police officer with a 9mm Glock 17, the clerk
with a .50 cal Desert Eagle, assisted by several customers who also drew
their guns, several of whom also fired, The robber was pronounced dead at the scene by Paramedics. Crime scene investigators located 47 expended cartridge cases in the shop.

The subsequent autopsy revealed 23 gunshot wounds.

Ballistics identified rounds from 7 different weapons. No one else was hurt
in the exchange of fire.

Here we are at the beginning of March and we already may have the 2005
winner of the Darwin Award.
